I’m all for a period piece if it involves pirates, dueling, cannons, vikings, nazis, mongols, rape humor, or human sacrifice.  So… what’s The Duchess about?

The film is based on Amanda Foreman’s best-selling novel ‘Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire’, chronicles the life of 18th century aristocrat Georgiana, an ancestor of Princess Diana who was also celebrated and reviled for her extravagant political and personal lives. The movie also stars Ralph Fiennes as the Duke of Devonshire. [/film]

"Duchess of Devonshire’" was my high school football nickname and that still sounds more boring than watching chamomile steep.  Seriously, if you know someone who finds this exciting, you should secretly get her addicted to heroin. You’d be doing her a favor, really.
